Functional selectivity of G protein-coupled receptor ligands; new opportunities for drug discovery.
Functional selectivity of G protein-coupled receptor ligands; new opportunities for drug discovery
Ed. by Kim A.Neve.
Humana Press Inc.
Editor Neve (behavioral neuroscience, VA Medical Center, Portland) has enlisted the help of expert pharmacologists and neuroscientists to assemble this textbook on functional selectivity of G protein-coupled receptor ligands, giving students and researchers in drug development and chemical biology a theoretical framework for further study. GPCR function topics include the mechanistic aspects of functional selectivity and subfamilies of therapeutically relevant selectors. Two pages of color plates on dopamine autoreceptors and postsynaptic receptors are tipped-in.
